The Port Hawkesbury Civic Centre is a focal point in the region, serving residents, tourists and the business community.

It is a state-of-the-art facility offering meeting and conference facilities, including a full conference room (5040 square feet), a 16X30 board room, and classroom space.

The Civic Centre also houses an arena, fitness centre, dance studio, performance space, the J. Franklin Wright Gallery, municipal offices, racquetball courts, and a walking track.

The Civic Centre is a remarkable example of a “green building” thanks to the use of innovative technologies in its design and construction. The building is not only environmentally friendly but also more efficient. It is fully equipped with all the necessary tools to cater to business needs including LCD screens, microphones, and high-speed Wi-Fi to name a few.

With catering and kitchen facilities on site, the Port Hawkesbury Civic Centre has everything required for your next meeting, convention, or event.

The Arena has 1,000 fixed seats and is capable of accommodating an additional 1,000 seats for theatre style or 700 seats with tables for banquet style setups. The Arena is also an excellent space to host trade shows and conventions.

It is the first arena in North America, and one of few in the world, to use natural daylight to illuminate the ice surface!
